Tifft Street Pier in Buffalo, NY

Buffalo has been generating a lot of buzz surrounding new public works that have been revitalizing the historical industrial districts for the public. The Tifft Street Pier and boardwalk is one of the projects that has been recently completed, and is now open to the public to enjoy. The beautiful Tifft Pier has a floating dock that allows pedestrians to experience being surrounded on all 4 sides by water from Lake Erie. There are benches, and also accommodations for fishing.

AdvantageLumber.com was chosen to supply the Ipe for the project. In an area like Buffalo, where winters can be extremely cold, only hardwoods like Ipe can sustain the onslaught of the elements. Our Ipe is featured on the floating dock as well as the walkway to the dock.  The Ipe that was used for the pier was 2×6 and will be left to be weathered to complete the look of this beautiful pier.

The walkway to the pier has accents of Ipe.
